Yes Robert is correct about the bug in this converter. Here is the author's

Hi David,
You found a bug. This issue is regards the Northing coordinate. If you
enter 6082675-10000000 = -3917324 as the Northing, you'll get the correct
lat/long values. This has to do with a peculiarity in the translation
engine used on the site. I'll fix it soon I hope.
Thanks for the find.
